Part-time

UPDATE: Thank you so much for your interest in this position! Unfortunately, we have receieved several dozen applicants and have chosen to move forward with them at this time. That said, we encourage you to still apply to this position here. If we have additional openings, we will be in touch!

Are you a film buff that can name every Best Picture Oscar-winner in the past decade? Would you rather binge-watch a full season of "Parks And Recreation" than go to a party? Do you have theories on the latest murder mystery to drop on Netflix? Then Elite Daily’s TV/film writer position is perfect for you.

Writers should have extensive knowledge of the latest in film news and must be comfortable analyzing TV shows ranging from ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Riverdale.’ Writers must have a fun and witty voice and the ability to write quickly and cleanly. There are also opportunities for thought provoking essays and analysis as well as reporting (not a requirement).

Bonus points if your background or experience lends itself to covering TV and film news from a unique perspective (please tell us how in your cover letter)!

A minimum commitment of at least 3 days per week is required, although the position could be 4-5 days a week as well. Writers will work remotely.

Elite Daily is a site for and by women who are discovering the world, and themselves in the process. Our writers, like our readers, come at life from a wide range of backgrounds, but we're all eager to learn about the world around us in a way that’s relatable, honest, and fun. But most of all, we’re in search of experiences — the kinds that could change our night, the kinds that could change our mind, and the kinds that could change our life. In the meantime, while we figure out where we stand, we’re here to help each other stand up for our friends, our beliefs, and, most of all, ourselves. And when nothing goes according to plan (does it ever?), we'll be here to laugh along with you.
